Short answer: Yes it will.

How you get SC2 running on a modern computer may depend on your operating system. For example, if you're using Win98, you should be able to install, double-click and away you go. I haven't tried running SC2 on WinXP, but I imagine there may be a few hoops to jump through. You might have to get your hands on a boot disk.
I can run SC2 under Linux using a DOS emulator, with very little fuss.

Dosbox is the greatest for running old games, It got my Maniac Mansion 2 original game running and x-com.
